Warriors star Draymond Green exchanges some banter with LeBron James while congratulating him for making the All-NBA Second Team
The NBA announced their All-NBA lists just moments before the Bucks-Nets tip-off. While there was a bit of chat about the same on Inside the NBA, it quickly got drowned out by James Harden returning, and then Kevin Durant having a magical night. While there are some expected names on the All-NBA teams, some choices left everyone scratching their heads.

LeBron James got his 17th All-NBA nod. This is the third time he has made the All-NBA second team. James was well on his way to get an MVP nod as well as a First-Team selection before he went down with his ankle injury.
LeBron James and Draymond Green enjoy some friendly banter
It is no secret that LeBron James and Draymond Green are tough competitors. While on the court, they give it their all and fight to win. However, off the court, their relationship has changed. After battling it out for four Finals in a row, the two got closer when Green signed with Klutch Sports, and now they share the same agent.
When Draymond Green got nominated on the All-NBA First Defensive team, LBJ congratulated the Warriors’ forward. Green returned the favor this time, with some trolling on the side. He called LeBron ‘The Washed King’, referencing what many ‘analysts’ have been calling him since the first-round exit.
Bron replied to the same, and shared it on his story, calling himself ‘Super Washed’.
While it may look like they’re joking around, if anyone knows these two, this means that the two, especially LeBron, are planning to come back strong next season. He would be relentless and try to reach the highest stages yet again.
